Fedora has issued an update for ntfs-3g. This fixes a weakness, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated privileges.
The weakness is caused due to improper set user id permissions assigned to the "/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g" file. This can be exploited by members of the group fuse to gain read and write access to restricted devices.
